So I’m reading a bit of the gaming news from the Madman’s Cafe and come upon this tidbit from the Atlanta Journal Constitution about pop up ads–on Television. Interesting article. I haven’t really watched television in a while, so it doesn’t affect me that much. I know that I hate pop up ads when I’m surfing. I’m trying to read something–then suddenly,
HEY THERE!! TRY OUR ONLINE CASINO!! FREE AIR TICKETS!! IF THIS IS FLASHING, YOU’VE ALREADY WON!!
When I did watch television, I fondly remember being able to use the restroom, go get a snack, etc. whenever there was a commercial or two. I really hope that pop up ads on television fail. Otherwise, I foresee an increase in the number of Tycho Brahe “open bladder” deaths.
